There has been a lot of weather news recently on the corners of Maryland. This includes the first winter storm in Garrett County and a confirmed tornado in Cecil County. Ironically, radar shows snow this morning in Cecil and there could be a trace on the grass or cars along that path.
The next storm will arrive this weekend. While it will bring in warmer air, I think there is still some wiggle room with what we may expect.
Snow Totals (from last night) By NWS Spotters
This is more than any event last year. It also brings the region to 1/10 of normal winter snow.

Snow Problems On I-68
Not a good situation up on I-68 tonight where #snow continues to fall heavily. Blowing and drifting snarling big rigs on on and off ramps while plow trucks try to keep up. Hold off travel until morning if you can. #mdwx @NWS_BaltWash @garrettchamber pic.twitter.com/nGWL9CpHh2

Doppler Radar showed a band of snow passing through metro Baltimore up to Cecil County. It was Port Deposit that had a confirmed EF-1 tornado on Monday.
There may be a light dusting on the grass or cars. This moved into Kent and Queen Annes County, but will continue to fade away.
Forecast Snapshot (central Maryland)
- Afternoon: Sunny
- Thursday: Mostly Sunny, with increasing clouds.
- Friday: Cloudy.
- Saturday: Next Storm. Rain may mix with snow at the end even though not shown here.
Saturday Storm Map
This European Model plot shows the Low passing southeast of Baltimore. But cold air is limited.
I think the snow cover in the mountains has not been factored in yet, which can influence the track and available cold air. That is why I believe there will be more snow in the back side, and some flakes will mix in at the end of this. Stay tuned.
After this storm, the pattern remains below ‘normal’. There is more energy in the pipeline, and I expect we will have at least one or two winter weather events to deal with by mid moonth.
